s nearly as possiblethe same in all cages. It will be understood that 10 gallons ofsolution were applied to 8 bushels of manure in all the cage experi-ments mentioned below, unless some other explanation is given.After treatment in this way the doors of the cages were closed andthe flytraps put in place. The cages were examined every day. Theescape of any larva? into the drip pan was noted, and the volumeof the drip water measured and a sample analyzed. A quart sam-ple of manure was removed through the small door at the side ofthe cage after a day or two and the percentage of living and deadmaggots determined. The larval counts of quart samples werevery unsatisfactory so far as indicating the comparative larvicidalvalue of the chemicals, but the results of some of these counts aregiven in the tables. After five to seven days flies began to emerge, and then it was nec-essary to darken the cages with black cloth tacked on the sides, as seen Bui. 118, U. S. Dept. cf Agriculture. Plate I.

Recipe: Fried Tofu Fritters
cook books
Image by Smaku
A different kind of finger food, this takes your yummy tofu and turns it into a yummy fritter. It’s like magic!

This recipe was taken from a Japanese cooking book.

Ingredients
600g medium (firmness) tofu
200g tuna (or split evenly with tuna and salmon)
1 large egg
1 cube of chicken stock, chopped finely
sprinkle of nutmeg
5 tablespoon of flour

Recipe

1) For this recipe, I split my ingredients evenly with 100g of tuna [1] and 100g of salmon [2], both canned.

2) I used medium firm tofu and boiled it for just about 3-5 minutes until heated throughout [4].

3) Mix the egg beforehand and pour on the tuna [6] in a large bowl. Chop the chicken stock cube and sprinkle on top. Sprinkle to taste some nutmeg [8].

4) Mix everything in the bowl using your hands, breaking apart the large pieces of tofu [9], making sure everything has been mixed equally.

5) Genly sift the flower on top of your mixture so that it gets mixed into the tofu mixture [10].

6) Mix by hand again [11]. Take a small handful from the bowl, and without patting it firmly into any shape, put it in the deep fryer (or wok with boiling oil) [12]. The key here is to have the oil really hot. Fry the fritters for about 30-45 seconds or until it gets to be a nice, golden brown colour on the outside. Take out of oil and cool. Repeat until you have used all the mixture.

7) Serve the fritters with some mustard and ketchup on the side. Dip the fritters in them as you eat them.

Finished fritters should look something like this.

Beef juice extracted from the broiled meat con-tains the nourishing properties of the meat. The several gruels are used with different results. 215 2i6 DAILY LIVING Oatmeal gruel is slightly laxative, and may be used innearly all cases. The wheat gruels are astringent, and Indian gruel, onaccount of the fat contained, is not given in fevers. All food which contains starch should have long, slowcooking to swell and burst the starch grain, which ren-ders it more digestible. Bread is better served toasted for the invalid, as duringthe process the starch changes into the first stage ofdigestion, the same as the action of the saliva on thefood, which is often lacking with the invalid. Starchy food should be used with caution where a con-centrated diet is required, as it adds bulk to the food. It has been said that a good sick room cook will savethe digestion half its work. Nourishing food is a valuable aid to the physician inthe recovery of the invalid, and should be studied inevery home.
